“It wasn’t really like a relaxing moment,” Whiteside told reporters postgame when asked about his new deal. “I felt like more security. I felt like the HEAT wanted me here for four more years; it’s stabilization. I can buy my first house. It was really an opportunity to know where I’m going to be. I’ve never been on a basketball team for longer than two years so for somebody to take that and say we want you for four more years was really humbling.”
This summer he signed a reported four-year, $98-million contract with the Miami Heat. Jones always thought Whiteside could have benefitted from a few more years in college and being drafted into a more stable situation. And he’ll always remember Whiteside’s promise he made to him. “One day Hassan goes, ‘You know what Jason? When I make it big, I’m only going to give you interviews and you’re going to be the only one because you talked to me when I was a nobody,” Jones remembers.
